Big thanks to Eric Charles Mokotoff for the great interview which he’s posted on his great Facebook Group (go join) and his Youtube (go subscribe). It’s a great discussion about my background but also method books and learning experiences that were influential along the way. We also talk about elitism in music and much more.
Regarding the role models sections, there were tons of excellent female role models for classical guitar in the past but I think they were not actively promoted at smaller record stores enough. The usual promoted players were Bream, Williams, Parkening, Segovia, and maybe Liona Boyd in smaller towns and stores in Canada. So the great female players didn’t get the all the exposure and marketing they deserved, nor were students introduced to them enough. These days there is so much more diversity readily available which is awesome.
